    PDF The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls I think any decent man would agree that sexual harassment and ineuality towards women and girls is wrong This book is a slap in the face to euality and it's so caustic spiteful and reaching for a fight that I'm not even sure I would personally consider it feminism in any true sense of the word This book does make some good points

Mona Eltahawy É 2 Read Read Ö PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free É Mona Eltahawy Review The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls A bold and uncompromising feminist manifesto that shows women and girls how to defy disrupt and destroy the patriarchy by embracing the ualities they've been trained to avoidSeizing upon the energy of the #MeToo movement feminist activist Mona Eltahawy advocates a muscular out loud approach to teaching women and girls to harness their power through what she calls the seven necessary sins that women and girls are not supposed to commit to be angry ambitious. 45 starsA brilliant firestorm of a book The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls acts as a radical feminist manifesto that transcends the trappings of white liberal feminism Mona Eltahawy takes a bold approach and demands that women access their anger desire for attention bodily autonomy and to destroy the patriarchy no kiddy gloves necessary She draws upon contemporary media and political examples from within the United States as well as references powerful feminist movements occurring across the world I appreciated how Eltahawy always asked of feminism than what its most basic definition entails for example this uote about what power for women may mean What does being powerful mean It must be than doing what men do or being what men can be I don t want to be something simply because a man can be that thing Men are not my yardstick If men themselves are not free of the ravages of racism capitalism and other forms of oppression it is not enough to say I want to be eual to them Eual to the ways they themselves are victimized by patriarchy No thanks I want to be free As long as patriarchy remains unchallenged men will continue to be the default and the standard against which everything is measured I feel grateful and energized by how Eltahawy maintained a bold forceful tone throughout this book Her anger radiates which makes sense given how she writes about angering topics such as abuse and sexual violence against women institutional sexism and Her analysis includes an intersectional framework that takes into account the uniue experiences of LGBTIA women and women of color She integrates her commentary about global feminist phenomena with her personal experience of victimization and activism merging the personal and the political There were some moments in the book where I felt that bogged down by her transitions or lack thereof between her personal stories and her broader political commentary such that I felt those moments dry or wanting of a bit finesse Still I d highly recommend this book to those who want to challenge themselves and confront the patriarchy with rage and ferocity to those who can handle their feminism with some heat I ll end this review with one uote that dismisses civility in the face of racism Racism is not civil Racism is not polite And yet here were all those people lined up to insist that we be civil when talking about Trump and his supporters Those people lined up to insist on civility were of course white For white Americans who have no experience of racism it is a concept a theory an idea to be debated and not a lived reality to be endured or survived Fuck that

Mona Eltahawy É 2 Read Read Ö PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free É Mona Eltahawy Review The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls Profane violent attention seeking lustful and powerful All the necessary sins that women and girls reuire to eruptEltahawy knows that the patriarchy is alive and well and she is fed up Sexually assaulted during hajj at the age of fifteen Groped on the dance floor of a night club in Montreal at fifty Countless other injustices in the years between Illuminating her call to action are stories of activists and ordinary women around the world from South Africa. Best summarized in the excerpt This book is not the place where you will hear the reasonable argument that patriarchy is bad for men and boys too It is indeed There are plenty of other books that make that argument and urge men that it is in their own interest to join forces with women to dismantle patriarchy I refuse to focus on and will not plead with those who benefit from my oppression to join a fight against a centuries long systemic oppression that not only hurts women and girls and all who deviate from the template of heterosexual conservative and mostly rich men but kills them The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls is a difficult but important bookEach of the essays is crowded with statistics and facts that elaborate on Eltahawy s opinions It reads like both a TED talk and a conversation with a close friend about the stereotypical roles that are assigned to women all around the world and the necessary sins to disrupt themEvery paragraph feels like a storm rolling through your body It s powerful and unabashedIt s everything feminism isCopy received through Edelweiss in exchange for a fair reviewRating 55 stars

Oh folks I wanted very much to like this book I m always down for a good manifesto I found it difficult to read at first and I m not sure why but then it hit one of my Absolute No Nos and I couldn t put it down It wasn t a hate read exactly but it absolutely clarified certain things for me about certain forms of feminism So I will say first Eltahawy s rightful and righteous anger is compelling and it s clear she s deeply invested in protecting women and destroying patriarchy as she understands it which is absolutely understandable Her chapter on violence in particular asks a lot of difficult uestions I think are worth chewing on even if I am uncomfortable to some extent with their implications as she wants me to be She draws on a huge number of international feminists of color and does not hold back and holding any number of nations responsible for their role in global patriarchy I don t think anyone is really left unexamined What I was most enraged by was the ways in which trans women appeared in this book Twice Eltahawy cites the statistic that the life expectancy of trans women of color is age 35 which is a statistic I m familiar with as a nonbinary trans person who exists on the internet That statistic is made up no study has ever been produced of the life expectancy of trans people period and doing so would be incredibly difficult In her first citation the abstract of the report notes that the authors had received information from unspecified sources of the life expectancy numbers This is my Big Beef repeating that statistic is bad enough when it comes from trans people who are living with the threat of death real or imagined all the time but now cis allies are repeating it And not just repeating it Eltahawy pairs the statistic with every time trans women make a major appearance in her arguments first in her chapter on attention where she notes that attention a sin that women and girls must crave is dangerous for trans women and then again in her chapter on lust where it appears alongside insisting we must consider trans women to be women so that trans women are always alongside death in the text This makes sense if you understand the book to be almost wholly surrounding the experiences of cis women which it is Eltahawy draws repeatedly on ideas regarding socialization though she doesn t not necessarily name it as such these sins she insists women are socialized away from worldwide Yet so many of these claims are around vaginas menstruation and little about the experiences of socialization are interrogated with regard to gender difference though she is careful about race in particular and class to a lesser extent Women must embrace these sins they have been socialized away from Early in the book Eltahawy insists she is not interested in the damage that patriarchy does to men which a claim which I admire to a certain extent but then the absence of trans men and transmasculine people and thus of the problems they pose to her feminism mean that she cannot actually interrogate the impact of patriarchy on people who are not cis women despite her occasional inclusion of trans women and once very casually trans men There is no interrogation of the impact of patriarchy on nonbinary people as if that impact is singular and impacts eually across all nonbinary people though she is uick to include them in her list of women nonbinary and ueer people She includes the activism work of cis gay men in her book she includes no trans voices at all Her chapter on lust also seems to hold little space for asexual people for folks interested in that nor does she speak of the potential of sex as a space of reenacting trauma etc but I don t know that I expected the latter Maybe I m being too harsh because she hit on my Personal Specific Beef with the statistics but I think the deployment of those statistics and her inability to grapple with the problem that transgender people especially trans men pose to her ideas of feminism seem to indicate a larger problem within cis feminism Eltahawy is not a TERF necessarily though I think having her engage deeply in the legacies of radical feminism on her thinking would be really interesting especially around issues of violence and she speaks the language of incorporation but I m left again with the understanding that mere incorporation without actually engaging in what the lives of transgender people and trans women especially entail in their relationship to patriarchy is not a feminism I find compelling
